Watch the Aston Martin Racing Team Perform a Perfect Mannequin Challenge

A freeze-frame cross-section of the 6 Hours of Bahrain

The so-called Mannequin Challenge is sweeping the internet, prompting different corporations and groups to post a challenge video of their own. Now, Aston Martin Racing is one of the first racing teams to participate, taking on the Mannequin Challenge at the recent 6 Hours of Bahrain.

Like most internet sensations, the Mannequin Challenge isn't terribly complicated. Essentially, a group of people all freeze in place, maintaining any position they had before the challenge began. The camera sweeps in-between the "mannequins," giving the illusion of a freeze-frame shot.

After a fantastic spot from the Hoonigan crew, Aston Martin Racing (AMR) threw its helmet into the freeze-frame ring with a Mannequin Challenge video from the 6 Hours of Bahrain endurance race. After motion is suspended, the camera moves through AMR's paddock area, capturing and incredible visual cross-section of the race team in action.

Everyone on AMR is included. The camera runs the entire gamut, beginning with the tire preparation area. As the shot moves inside, the entire logistics and data team are motionless at their computer stations. The view moves into the garage area, where we see crew attending to two LMGTE Aston Martin Vantage V8s. Outside, activity resumes with the pit crew surrounding a third Vantage.

Check out the Aston Martin Racing team demolish the Mannequin Challenge in the video below.
